MANAMA, Bahrain—Wyndham Hotel Group announced plans for the first Wyndham Grand property in Bahrain following the signing of an agreement with Cooperation Investment House SPC to manage its prestigious landmark building in Manama’s Bahrain Bay.
Upon opening, the hotel will join the Wyndham Grand® Collection, an ensemble of hotels within the upscale Wyndham Hotels and Resorts brand.
Currently under development, the five-star Wyndham Grand Manama is expected to open by the end of next year with more than 260 guestrooms ranging from 46 to 120 square meters. Covering 14 floors of a 50-story mixed use development, it will also comprise 500 square meters of meeting space and a 900-square-meter ballroom on the building’s top floor. Complemented by indoor and outdoor infinity swimming pools and separate health clubs for men and women, the development will also include five food and beverage outlets.
“This is an incredibly dynamic and exciting development,” said Bani Haddad, regional vice president Middle East & Africa, Wyndham Hotel Group, in an announcement. “Each Wyndham Grand hotel takes in some of the flavor of its destination and this modern, cosmopolitan setting will be reflected in the hotel along with historical Bahraini influences. It is a fantastic setting and a great property for this distinguished collection.”
